Following her best-selling TASCHEN monograph, Linda McCartney’s Polaroid Diaries brings together highlights from her vast archive. Taken from the early 1970s until the mid-1990s, the portraits, still lifes, landscapes and interior compositions affirm her bold eye for pattern, color, or simply an elegant fall of light. Through these candid instant pictures, we discover an intimate testimony to McCartney as an experimental artist and photographer.
Also available in a signed Collector’s Edition and in two limited Art Editions, each with a print signed by Paul McCartney
I always used to say to Linda, ‘When are we going to look at these? We’ve got millions of them.’
We kept saying, ‘Oh we’ll just take one day a year when we look through all our photos.’ Linda got a Polaroid camera shortly after we met. In the early days, it was a great fun thing for anyone to have one, just because of the magic of watching it develop. But being a photographer, she did more with it than most people would, she was very intrigued by the whole thing.Paul McCartney – excerpt from a FT article
From the minute I met her and she took pictures, I just knew that I could trust her and that whatever she took I’d be comfortable with. So you didn’t do anything, you didn’t really pose. I mean I was doing my teeth and the spittle was falling out, I just sort of turned around and she took the picture.Paul McCartney, from Facebook
